Happy Thursday! It is truly happy for me as I have stumbled upon a gold mine of sorts. I have recently discovered the work of British painter Susan Ryder (many of you are probably? familiar with her paintings but she’s a wonderful surprise to me). She specializes in both portrait painting and interiors, as you will see in a minute. She has the best eye for interior design, I’ve never seen more beautiful renderings (and in oil, no less!). Oil can be such a tricky medium when capturing minutiae but her paintings can range both in scale (large scenes as well as sublime miniatures) and mood. She has painted romantic gardens and lush Victorian interiors, with the British manor house being one of her favorite settings.

Susan Ryder was born in 1944 and started painting at a very early age, encouraged by her father Robert Ryder VC, a royal Navy Officer and recipient of the Victoria Cross (the highest award for gallantry in the face of the enemy that can be awarded by the British and Commonwealth forces). Her style was inspired by the work of post-modernist artists like édouard Vuillard, whose gentle interior scenes and sunlit gardens have had a lasting impression on Ryder’s painting. Her impressive career spans over half a century. She had her first Royal Academy exhibit at the age of 18, she became the member of the New English Art Club, as well as the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, where she served as president between 2002-2008.

Her portrait subjects are vastly diverse, with? the most notable ones being HRH the Princess of Wales and HM the Queen. In 1981, the Prince of Wales commission Ryder to paint Diana’s portrait in her wedding dress while in 1995, the Royal Automobile Club commissioned a portrait of the Queen.

Completed over the course of five sittings in the Yellow Drawing Room at Buckingham Palace, the Queen’s portrait is currently displayed at the Royal Automobile Club in Pall Mall, London.

The interesting part is that Ryder’s most successful work is in interior painting. Her exhibits are almost entirely sold-out but you can commission new work through her website here. Bellow are ?some of the most striking interiors she’s painted (most of them already sold to private collectors). Enjoy!
